Tom Hardy and Chris Pine Wanted For Activision's Call Of Duty Movie

Last week we learned that the director of Sicario 2, Stefano Sollima, was hired to helm the first feature film adaptation of Activision's video game franchise Call of Duty. He seems like he is a great choice to take on the film, which is said to launch a Call of Duty cinematic universe.

In a recent interview with Metro, the director reveals that he wants to cast Tom Hardy and Chris Pine in his movie. I think both of these actors would be a perfect fit for the film. When talking about Hardy, Stefano said:

"I mean, I like almost everything [he’s been in]. I’m waiting for his Venom. Even in Mad Max, he was great."

He then went on to talk about Pine and what he could bring to the movie:

"He’s tough, but he’s smart and he can have a sense of humour but he can [also] be in such a dramatic role.

Call Of Duty Director Wants Tom Hardy And Chris Pine To Star

For a while now, rumours have been swirling around Sicario 2 director Stefano Sollima, suggesting that he’s the frontrunner in the race for the director’s chair on the highly anticipated film adaptation of the Activision game, Call Of Duty. Now that Activision Blizzard is stepping up talk of work on that project, all eyes are on Sollima for some kind of hint as to what he might be planning, were he to be confirmed for the job.

Speaking to Metro in a recent interview, the director took the opportunity to single out two specific actors that he greatly admires and would like to work with on the Call of Duty movie – specifically, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine.

“I mean, I like almost everything [Tom Hardy has been in]. I’m waiting for his Venom. Even in Mad Max, he was great.

A “Babysitter” McG Tries With

Ah, the Halloween season. The weather’s cooling down, the sun’s setting earlier, the leaves are browning and pumpkins are being carved for decoration and pies. It also means you’re sure to find a couple of new scary movies trying to make their genre marks while holding their own against the classics. And while Hollywood is currently focused on the horror of lascivious producers, Netflix and director McG are focused on getting their fantastical little yarn called The Babysitter out to thrill and make you laugh. The success rate of that, unfortunately, isn’t what it should be.

From the onset, preteen protagonist Cole (“Demolition”’s Judah Lewis) is a checklist of every movie nerd stereotype turned up to 12: terrified of Everything (even his own shadow would be afraid of its shadow), dresses like an outdated 1990s computer programmer, bullied by the older kids and has one

How McG Turned Losing a 'Superman' Movie Into Something Positive

How McG Turned Losing a 'Superman' Movie Into Something Positive
McG is known for commanding productions where hundreds of millions are on the line, so fear is not a trait you'd associate with the director. But he says that a phobia of flying that cost him one of the highest profile jobs in the business: directing a Superman movie.

The filmmaker behind Charlie's Angels, Terminator Salvation, This Means War and the new Netflix film The Babysitter started developing anxiety disorder when he was around 16 years old, and part of that manifested in a phobia of flying. He was able to shoot the Charlie's Angels movies in California, but turned down chances...

Samara Weaving And Bella Thorne Wreak Havoc In ‘The Babysitter’ Trailer

Director McG has done his share of action driven material and has also genre hopped in the process (3 Days to Kill, Charlie's Angels, Terminator Salvation, This Means War). He continues that cinematic diversity with The Babysitter, a coming of age story that, along with its dark humor, has murder on its mind. Cole (Judah Lewis) [...]

Teen Wolf: Ranking 12 of the Series' Best (and Worst) Villains

Teen Wolf‘s mythology has always been a double-edged sword.

The MTV drama’s ever-expanding supernatural universe has drawn a slew of iconic villains to Beacon Hills, while also luring in the occasional dud who gets killed off before you even learn how to spell their name correctly.

In that spirit, TVLine is looking back at 12 of the show’s best and worst villains, ahead of its series finale this Sunday (8/7c). From earlier baddies like Peter Hale and the Darach to more recent evildoers like the Desert Wolf and the Anuk-Ite, it’s time to get real about how

Teen Wolf Pilot Revisited: Scott Meets Allison, Derek Arrives (Sketchily) and Nobody Knows What They Are

Ladies and gentlemen, Teen Wolf used to be a very different show.

In advance of the MTV drama’s series finale on Sunday (8/7c), TVLine took a look back at Teen Wolf‘s 2011 pilot episode, and it was a lot to process. It was honestly like stepping into an alternate universe — one where Jackson is straight, Allison is alive, and the names Malia, Liam and Mason mean nothing. To anyone. (And then there’s the fact that Lydia has no clue she’s actually a freakin’ banshee.)

Film Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’

Film Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’
“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” is about as close to a live-action cartoon as you’re likely to get this year — you know, the kind where someone blows a cannonball-shaped hole through Wile E. Coyote’s abdomen or a stick of dynamite reduces him to a pile of cinders, and the next thing you know, he’s up and chasing the Road Runner again. That’s not a style that works much of the time (see “Shoot ’Em Up” or early Arnold Schwarzenegger flop “The Villain”), but in the hands of “The Expendables 3” helmer Patrick Hughes — and more importantly, owing to the chemistry of stars Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds — it makes for a delightfully ridiculous screwball action comedy.

The premise is simple: Jackson plays the hitman, Darius Kincaid, Reynolds plays his bodyguard, Michael Bryce, and they both need to get from London to the Hague without getting killed. That

‘Home Again’ Trailer: Reese Witherspoon Goes Back Home
Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon has another comedy coming up. The last two comedies she starred in, Hot Pursuit and This Means War, weren’t embraced as warmly as Sweet Home Alabama or Legally Blonde, but her next film, Home Again, which is Hallie Meyers-Shyer‘s directorial debut, looks more grounded than her last two comedies. Below, watch the Home Again trailer. Over the last few years, Witherspoon […]

Good morning Angels! Sony announce remake of Charlie’s Angels, Elizabeth Banks directing

Author: Scott Davis

You could say that this was an inevitability given the amount of remakes, reboots and reimaginings that have graced the big-screen over the last decade or so. Indeed with more and more television adaptations working with cinema audiences, it’s no real surprise to hear that cult television series Charlie’s Angels is getting a second outing (via THR / The Tracking Board).

Sony has announced that a new version of the show is set for a reboot after the project had originally had two big-screen versions in 2000 and 2003 respectively. With the likes of Baywatch (read our review here), 21/22 Jump Street, CHiPS and others taking to the big-screen with mixed results (Baywatch opens in the Us tomorrow), it’s now seemingly the time to revisit the series.

Already attached to direct the film is Elizabeth Banks, who made her directorial debut on 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2 with Angels marking her sophomore effort.

Ynms: "Home Again"

Chris here. Big Little Lies may have been the kicked off a seemingly endless lineup of projects to obsess over for both Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern (welcome, new fans of both - it's nice here), but what about those of us craving more Reese-surgence?

Fear not because Reese Witherspoon will be return to the big screen very shortly and she's back in the warm fuzzy mode this time for Home Again. Those warm fuzzies will come from the cashmere sweater universe of producer Nancy Meyers and her first-time writer/director daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer. Witherspoon stars as a single mother who invites three young men to live with her before they all promptly fall in love with her. How could they not, right? Call it Big Little Guys.

Can you believe it's been since This Means War (eek, remember that one?) since we've had her in a romantic comedy?

Reese Witherspoon dabbles with being a cougar in Home Again trailer

Author: Zehra Phelan

It looks like a family affair all around, from production crew to plot when it comes to Reese Witherspoon and Michael Sheen’s new “modern” romantic comedy Home Again which has just released its brand new trailer.

Starring Reese Witherspoon, Michael Sheen, Candice Bergen, and Lake Bell, Home Alone focuses on Alice (Witherspoon) and her emergence back into the world of dating after separating from her husband (Michael Sheen). The trailer has Witherspoon, verging over the boundaries of 40 and bedding at least one younger lover after moving three young men into her house.

Produced by Nancy Meyers (The Intern, It’s Complicated, What Women Want, The Holiday) and written and directed by her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer, Home Again is a story of love, friendship, and the families we create. And one very big life lesson: Starting over is not for beginners.

Rejoice, DVD Fans! Rentals Aren't Dead Yet

Let's wax nostalgic for a moment and celebrate the physical side of home video. Even though many of us fondly recall the VHS era, the popularity of DVD players surpassed videocassette recorders back in 2006. This popularity was reflected in movies like Hot Fuzz (top) and This Means War (below). Blu-ray, originally envisioned as the higher-fidelity successor to the DVD, was fated to survive the zombie apocalypse, according to Warm Bodies (below). But Blu-ray players have not achieved the same popularity as DVD players; the rise of digital streaming has had a large impact over the past few years. Still, 15% of U.S. homes do not have a broadband internet connection and many people have held onto their DVD machines and treasure their collections, which sometimes number...

Chris Pine & Michelle Williams To Star In Spy Thriller From ‘Theory Of Everything’ Director

For a while, we wondered if Chris Pine would ever be able to escape the shadow of Captain Kirk. Before he starred in J.J. Abrams’ first “Star Trek” film, Pine was mostly known for tween fare like Lindsay Lohan vehicle “Just My Luck” or “The Princess Diaries 2.” Pine proved to be perfect casting in the role that was created by William Shatner, but subsequent starring vehicles didn’t often work: for every “Unstoppable,” there was a “This Means War,” or a “Rise Of The Guardians,” or a “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” or a “Horrible Bosses 2.”

I Have the Power! Masters of the Universe reboot set for Christmas 2019; McG no longer directing

Author: Scott Davis

By The Power Of Grayskull! After years of back and forth over a mooted adaptation of Masters of the Universe, with many different writers and directors attached to bring the series back to the big screen, Sony have now officially announced a release date for the return to Eternia.

Most recently linked to the project was McG, the filmmaker behind Charlie’s Angels, Terminator Salvation and This Means War, and early last year he stated that he was to make the film and had met Twilight star Kellan Lutz about possibly playing the title role. But with the announcement of the new release date comes news that the director has now exited and the search is on for a new helmer. (via EW).

Indeed, many screenwriters have taken a stab at the screenplay with Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) and Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) amongst those hired previously.

Trevor Habberstad, X-Men and Doctor Strange Stuntman, Passes Away at 27

The Hollywood community is in mourning once again, only this time, for a young man who passed far before his prime. Trevor Habberstad, a stuntman and stunt coordinator who most recently worked on X-Men: Apocalypse, Doctor Strange and Passengers, passed away on Sunday at the age of 27. The stuntman succumbed to a rare form of cancer. Trevor Habberstad was on a family vacation in Hawaii last year when he began to feel stomach pain that doctors initially thought was appendicitis, but after another evaluation, it was revealed that he actually had gastric cancer.

Jeff Habberstad, Trevor's father and a stuntman/stunt coordinator as well, told Khts News in their hometown of Santa Clarita, California that they just found out about a week and a half ago that the cancer had spread into the late stuntman's brain. Jeff Habberstad served as a stunt coordinator for director Bryan Singer on 2014's
